With three offices and a dozen patent professionals across the country, the internationally experienced KARO IP is a great choice for the full range of IP services, from brands to employee inventions. In the world of patents the firm has expertise over a wide swath of technical areas, from healthcare to information technology. The practice is co-headed by patent attorneys Justus Kreuels and Matthias Rößler. Kreuels is a mechanical engineer by training and has been a practising attorney for over 10 years. Recent highlights concern prosecution work in the processing and packaging field; portfolio management for Bucher Hydraulics, a leading international supplier of innovative hydraulic drive and control technology; and technical support for a chemical company in court proceedings. “Justus anticipates client needs and delivers. He understands the core issues quickly and he finds solutions efficiently.” Rößler is also a mechanical engineer and has been a patent attorney for 20 years. A diligent and strategic portfolio manager, Rößler’s patrons include companies in consumer goods and automobile manufacturing, among other industries. “Matthias is very professional and delivers very high-quality work. His commitment to his clients is impressive.” He and Sven Jessen deliver IP due diligence in M&As to Volkswagen AG. An automotive expert, Jessen spent several years working for Audi and its subsidiaries before moving into the patent profession. His experience in the industry gives his advice a technical and commercial edge appreciated by his clientele. The firm’s third co-founder alongside Kreuels and Rößler is the deeply experienced Hermann Kahlhöfer, who has been working in the field of intellectual property for more than 40 years.
